Sanchez Seems Down to Take a Paycut

All right, I don't mean to brag, but I did write this a few weeks ago:

We all know the Jets have a ton of guys to keep under contract this off-season. Tannenbuam said he would like to keep as many guys as possible, but there's a good chance the Jets will have a couple of casualties in free agency. 

Something (or someone) has to give. Why not Sanchez?


Yesterday, speaking to reporters, Sanchez said "Whatever we need to do to win, its on...Revis, me, whoever, it doesn't matter."

I said this before, but I'll say it again: Sanchez is not talented enough to win on his own. Its in his best long-term interests to surround himself with a top-notch supporting cast. The only way for him to do that right now is to take a paycut. 

As for Revis, I would be stunned if he took a paycut after his well-documented holdout last August, even if it would mean landing Nnamdi Asomugha.
